"Rob Dyrdek's Wild Grinders" is a kickin' animated comedy series on Nicktoons set against the exciting backdrop of the sport of skateboarding. Inspired by the real-life experiences of professional skateboarder and entrepreneur Rob Dyrdek (star of MTV's "Rob & Big," "Fantasy Factory" and "Ridiculousness"), each episode follows the adventures of a group of friends bonded by their love of skateboarding.

The series stars Lil Rob, a quick-thinking skater kid, his talking right-hand dog Meaty (inspired by his own bull-dog of the same name), his best friend Goggles, and their middle school skate crew. The series follows the friends, known as Wild Grinders, on their escapades around their hometown of Sprawl City and at their beloved skate spot, The Lot. This smart, witty and talented posse from diverse backgrounds skate in and out of dilemmas, undertake new challenges and experience adventures together. From an undersea skating quest (inspired by Dyrdek's real life dive with sharks) to starring in a zany reality show, each episode of Wild Grinders is infused with fun and friendship.

The cast includes Rob Dyrdek as the voice of Lil Rob and Gene; Chelsea Chanel Dudley, the rapping receptionist from the "Fantasy Factory," as the voice of Flipz; Sterling Brim, Rob's co-host on MTV's "Ridiculousness," as the voice of Meaty; Kel Mitchell, Nickelodeon's "Kenan & Kel," as the voice of Jay Jay; and comedian Erin Fitzgerald ("Ed, Edd & Eddy," "Monster High") as the voice of Stubford, the self proclaimed nemesis of Lil Rob.

In the premiere episode, "Deconstructed," the Wild Grinders must figure out a way to save their beloved vacant lot skate spot from Track Huckersterball, the meglo-maniacal, greedy local business man, who plans to use the land to build a theme park. Then in "Close-Up," hotshot TV Network head honcho Chip Fliggington is looking for a new reality star. When Lil Rob catches his eye, Chip casts him and the Grinders in a series of terrible reality shows.

"Rob Dyrdek's Wild Grinders," created and executive produced by Dyrdek, is produced in partnership with Home Plate Entertainment and Dyrdek's Four Down Productions. Agogo Corporation, Moonscoop, Telegael and Copernicus Studios are also co-producers on the HD production.
